UCPD POA Board Members
The Union City Police Officers Association (POA) is a non-profit organization with ninety-three regular and associate members. The POA is the single largest collective bargaining unit in the city. The regular and associate membership consists of police sergeants, corporals, officers, dispatchers, public service officers, records clerks, community service aides, crime analyst and a property clerk. .
The Association was formed to secure a closer relationship among its members, provide for the welfare of its members, and to increase the skill and efficiency of its members. The Association believes that this will ultimately provide better service to the community that we serve.
The POA supports various community programs with financial aid. We have several fundraising activities throughout the year which includes the annual UCPOA Crab Feed and UCPOA Golf Tournament. The POA also participates in the following community events annually such as the Special Olympics, Special Olympics Torch-Run, Tip-A-Cop Fundraiser, and Relay for Life.
The POA returns the raised funds back to the community which we serve. We currently fund two scholarships through the New Haven Unified School District Scholarship Foundation. The POA funds to the UCPD Explorer Post to sponsor their Regional Explorer Competition as well as their yearly awards banquet. We also enjoy helping and providing gifts to those in need during the holiday season in Union City.
